Ep #28: James Newcomb on Being Authentic, Career Hang Times, and Readiness

The Working Actor's Journey

Today's guest started in the theatre at a very young age, felt adrift and wasn’t exactly sure what he’d do as a young man, and ended up working for years at some of the best theatres in the country. Jamie Newcomb has performed in over 60 Shakespeare plays and 75 other productions. He worked for 14 seasons at the Oregon Shakespeare Festival, is a founding company member of Shakespeare & Company, and was an inaugural company member of The Denver Center Theatre, where he remained for 7 seasons.

There is no one path and no single answer. We want to learn from all of those further down the road, to shorten the learning curve and to discover what helps and what doesn’t when it comes to having a lifelong career as an actor.

Ep.212(from the vault):James Newcomb AKA Jimi the Don - Mindfulness Equals Happiness

A Glass Blower’s Companion with Jason Michael -Helping Today's Glass Artist Think Like an Artistic Entrepreneur

Episode 165: James Newcomb AKA Jimi the Don        @mindfulglassworks on Instagram   Bio: I was born in Providence, Rhode Island, 16th of June, year of our science, 1980.I dropped out of college to get into business management, traveled around the country for a bit, sold glass for people at shows and festivals and such.  Started working with glass as a medium in the late 90s, got into lampworking in 2004, and have been shaping it into a career ever since. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- GO TO WWW.WYZGUYMEDIA/RESOURCES FOR A DOWNLOADABLE FILE TO FIND OUT WHAT YOUR BASELINE COST TO MANUFACTURE YOUR PRODUCTS ACTUALLY IS.

This is a generic example example 3"-wrap and rake hand pipe Material breakdown : 2" section of simax 25.4 hvy wall ($8.00/60") $0.13per inch or $0.26(2"section) 1/2" section of color cobalt firsts ($5.25/18") $0.15 9" section 4mm clear for raking ($0.52/60") $0.09 Estimated total for cost of Goods 3"wrap and take spoon ($0.26+$0.15+$0.09)=$0.50 Propane/oxygen/power is pennies on the dollar if you're able to get liquid oxygen. If you are renting space you still need to calculate your estimated per hour rate. If you pay $1500.00/mo(power,rent,gas) break it down to per day then estimate how many hours you work in a day and use that number as a base calculation. $1500.00/month (30-day month) is approx $50.00/day (per hour in a 10-hr day) $5.00/hr (gases,power,rent) If you can make 10-$5.00 3" wrap spoons per hour your estimated cost per hour is $10.00/hr (power,rent,gas) $5.00+(material x's 10-hr) $5.00= $10.00/hr. to manufacture 10-$5.00 spoons Net-$50.00(10-$5.00 3" w/r)-$10.00(cost to manufacture)= Gross approx $40.00/hr. In a 8 hr day do the math You can see just by getting a good base line down for estimating your cost to manufacture you have the ability to make anywhere from $30-60.00/hr gross profit Gross= income Net =income-cost to manufacture =profit Now take 15% of your gross and put that aside for TAXES !!!!
